The structure of the foods vary, opting for more whole less processed vs refined commercially produced products play a significant role in how the body uses, processes and stores those nutrients.
This breakfast has a good combination of healthy fats, high fiber carbohydrates and of course a good amount of much needed protein.
The structure of the type of fat, carb and protein affects how we process it within the body.
This overnight simple easy to make overnight quinoa porridge is not only slow releasing but it also takes more energy to digest. Unlike commercial refined carbohydrate sugar loaded breakfast cereals. These commercial processes “breakfasts” usually don’t use much of the bodies energy to digest, plus it releases more energy a lot quicker than what your body needs (fast releasing carbohydrates) therefore the excess glucose gets stored in the body mostly in the fat tissue and liver.
